THE TBOUBLE. ?
The Rudolph Aronaon Opero Company started
for Washington on the 4:30 train on Saturday
afternoon, where they appear in " Nadjy" durlng
thia week. One member of the company did not ap?
pear at the etation with the others; that member
was Francis Wilson, and the cause of bla absenoe
was the following letter:
Caaino, New-York, March 8, 1889.
Mr. Francla Wtlaon.
Dear Klr: Tbe acu of tosubordinatlon and breaeh of
disciptine of whlch you were gullty durlng tha per
forraaoces glven on tha 7th aod 8th Inata, and on pr*
vtous occaalona, aa also tbe unjuetifiable course whlch
you bave for aome Uuie p*st pursued wlth s viaw to dls
organlxtng my companlee for your nltlmate benefit ln
duoe ma to tenntoate your engagement You are hereby
notlfled that your servtcas will not be requlred after
tbe present det*. Very reepectfully,
Rudolph Aronaon aaid to a Tribune reporter
last evening; " I waa present in Brooklyn a few
eveninga ago on the occaaion of the performance
of 'Nadjy' by the company of which Mr. Wilson
was a member. Upon his entrance with Rakoszy,
in the flrst aet, Mr. Wilson uses a pair of cymbals.
He looked at them, and to my surprise tbrew
them into the wings whlle in sight of the audienoe,
almost striking aeveral of the chorus people who
?ere then on the stage. After a moment'a hesita
tdon, he dcliberately walked ofl the atage, re
maining away aome minubes, while his dutiea
required his presence in a aoene with Bakoszy.
This action alone was sufficient to cause hla
knmediate dJflmissal from the company. But
ftside from that his action, for some time past,
has been unprofesslonal and unbusinesslike in
the extreme. For example, I hbte his uneulled
for attack on the stage manager in Chicago, and
his engagement of a number of my chorus people
with asaurances to them tbat he had my consent
for ao doing, which was not the case. In one
word, he is afflictcd. with what we term in
theatrloal parksnee a 'big head.' It was
simply a question aa to whether I should manage
the company or whether it should be managed by
Mr. Wilson. Naturally, I preforred the former.
If durlng a performance he does not obtnin a
certain amount of appiause, he does things which
are out of order. He has been a constant source
of annoyanoe ever since he departed from the city.
James Powers will appear in place of Mr, Wilson."
Francis Wilson waa met by the reporter shortlv
afterward, as he came from the Casino, where he
had just written the following letter to Mr. Aron?
Mr. Rudolph Aronaon.
Dear Slr: Youra of March 8, dellvered u> me at my re*!
denee 12:45 a. m. to-day by Casino box ofUee employe, to
hand. I am greatly surprlaed at eontoata of letter.for I s?
unaware of any action oa my part wbloh permlta yoa to dis
penee wltb my aevteca. I am now and have been prepared
to fulfll my contract to svery particular. hwaltlng your
tostractioos as to wber* aad when I shall report for
duty, I aaa youra rekpectfuily, F. WILSON.
When aaked by the reporter to tell hia aide of
the atory, Mr. Wilson aaid: ? I believe this thing
to be the oontinuanoe of a plan of malicioua per
secution formed by Mr. Aronaon ever since I re
fused to permit hlm to wipe hia fret on mr con?
tract, and ever sinoe he knew that I waa iikely to
be in the fleJd as an active compttitor at the
Broadway Theatre. I heord Mr. Aronson aay in
Philadelphia that he would apend $20,000 to
thwart my aucceas at my opening. That will take
place on May 18, with 'The OoUh.* I have
engaged my troupe, which wiil oonslst of the fol?

SELECTIONS FROM THE MAIL.
CANADA AND ANNKXATION.
THM "CANUCK" 8AID TO LOVR THB STATM
ONLY WITH A SKLFI8H MOTIVB.
To the Bdilor of Tk* Tribune.
Slr: It would be an Interestlng atudy to flnd out, If
flndlng out be poaalble, ]_t why the asaertlon la ao
often made that Canadlaoa are ready to Joln the Unlon,
to doff Brltonlam and don Ameiicanlsm. It la mads
becauae the newapapera of Canada advoeate annexa
tlont Ia lt made becauae the law.makers of the
Domlnlon advoeate annexatlont Where ln all the
Domlnlon ls there any cl*?a of men, of real tmportance
tn atandlng or numbcre, who advoeate annexatlon t It
would be difflcult to flnd ln Canada lUclf any found*.
Hon for the aseertton. Canada may come Into tha
Unlted Btates, but howT Not as a natton, not as a
State nor as aeveral Statea, not aa a dlssoclated member
of tbe Britlsh Emptre; but she Is comlng and wlll con?
tinue to como ae indrvlduals. as sturdy laborers. aa
industrloua arUsans, aa home-bulldera, as thrlvlng pro
duceis. Hundreds of thouaand* of Canadlaoa bave
come over Into the Statea. They come generally, not
aa " Yankeea," but aa " Caaucka" and true Brltons.
They refuse to naturallie. They proudly boast of their
alleglanoe to Great Brltaln. They opanly announc* that
they are here, not a* Amerleans. bavlng a dlrect per.
aonal tntereat ln the state*, but as Brltons, livtog here
to make the coavpetency denled to them to their own
country. Buffalo baa thousands of tbese Brltena.
Every other fronttar town ls full ot them. They are
frugal, thiifty, honeat, Intelllgent, Industrloua aad
monev-maklng and money-aavlng people, but they
are not Amerloan to any'acnae of the word.
Now, thls belng Indtsputably true of the Canadlaoa
who llve In the Unlted Statea, what must be thought
of the Canadlana who remain to CanadaT Tbe Brlton
ls nowhere more a Brlton than In Canada No Brlton
more oordiaUy fawns upon royalty than the Canadlan
Brlton. No Brlton la to-day further from any wlah
or any attempt to dlsmemter the groat Britlsh Kmplre
than la the Canadlan Brlton.
The average Canadlan aums up the whole altnatlon
from a purely flnanclal polnt of vtcw. He longa to
be admltted to the markeU of tbe State* wtth bls lum
ber, bls oras, his graln, his coal and bls other produee,
and that Is aa far as be goes. He wanU the Ameriean
dollar, Lut l.$ does not want the Stois and fcsripee. He
prefers to thlak, and be ta qulte ready to assert, that
be la a aupertor belng becauae be la a Canadlan and a
lirlton. He proclalma that lt he haa.an "even chance*
wlth the Yanhee he ean worst hlm. He does not
seem, however, to be abk> to make for hlmaelf the
? chances." Ha walts tul the Yank e makes them, and
then b* attempts to utlllze them.
Boad a Canadlan paper, and you wlll aee tbat,
where Dakotans ratae only twelve or thlrtcen buakeb
of xftieat to the acre, the Manltoban rataes thlrty-tve
or torty bushels. You wlll see that all tbe Mraber
and mlncral wealth of the Statea la a mere flea-blte to
oomparhon wlth that of Canada You wlll be told

clal Interwto on the Isthmus and in the West Indiee,
the dlsiurbances of 1885 would not only be repeated,
but would be greater, and make necessary the landtog
of a protecttog naval foree.
I niat an Army offlcer In the new Army Bulldlng to
Whltehall-tt yeaterday, aa he was maktog a cursory
Inapectton ot it upon whlch to base a calculatlon as to
how soon It oould probably be completed and occupled.
llo made muoh oomment, not u offloiaUy," but u ad
vtaedly," upon the way tbe work upon the bulldlng
has dragged, and sald U waa hoped to have It ready
tor oocupatlon before May 1, although at the present
rate of spced or slowuess the bulldlng would not be
completed ta another generation. When lt ta ftolahed
the Army headquarters wlll be removod from Houaton
aud oreene sta., where lt has been ao many yeara, to
the new bulldlng, whlch ta much more eaally acceaalbia
to communlcatlon wlth Governor's Island, Fort Hamil
tou, Sandy Hook and other army atations than the
present statton. He remarked to me: "The Sundry
Ctvll bill ot tbe prevtou* acaslon of Congress approprl
ated 885,000 for 'comptattog the work of remodeUtog
the old Produea Kxchang* Bulldtng,' and dlrectad the
Sccrotary of War to cause the bulldlng to ba completed
and occupled wlthout delay. Tb* $xpre_k>n 'remodel
llng' l* mhdcadang, tor the old bulldlng we* completely
removed and a new foundatton made for the present
structure of heavler materlal*. To taoilltate the work
all expendlturee upon the bulldlng were made aubject
lo the eontrol snd dlrection of the rJeeretary of War.
And atill the bulldlng ls unflntahed."
" I look for a general shaklag up among tha Army
oflloera who have enjoyed the sweeta of Washlngton
llfe more than the aUotted time and through Influ
ence," sald thls offlcer, further. "Secreury Endleott
threatoned to have many relleved when be flrst went
to Washlngton, but as tlme went oa others were
ordered, one by one, untll tho number ls greater ln
each Department than la March, 1885. Thls recaUs
to mind tbe Ordnance Department, aod General
Benet'a famous political ctroular. Dld you observe
lu hla recent report, In anawer to the Senate resoln?
tlon, the reasona he gave for maktog it 'eonfldentlal' t
1c was sent to cummandtog oflic*ws of National
armorlea and arsenele, and to substance practlcaUy
dlrected them to favor Dimocrats tn tb* matter of
appolntmenta and dlscharge* General Benet aaya
that the taeuanoe ot the clrcular waa the result of an
'Intervlew wlth the Honorable Sacretary of War,'
and that he 'put the Idea Into practlcal operetiou.'
He sald that It was marked 'eonfldentlal' becauae lt
waa totended for the eapeclal Intormatlon of and as
a guide to commandang offloera tn tholr actlona, and
Its objeot could be best carrled out lf knowledge of It
was eonflned to the offieers who atone were eipected
ta aet under it.' He complatas that Its publleatlon
was a vlolatlon ot Its eonfldentlal oharacter. Ita
effeet ln the dlscharge of many dopendent wldowa and
chlldren of vtterans of the war Is to be deplored, and
General Benet does not regret more deeply than bls
brother offlcer* that actlve polltlca should bave entcred
Into a servlee that should never exerels* partlsanshtp
of any aiud, aa we are creaturea and defendera of
the Government aad Its people."
